Hola Michael,
 
The most common keystroke to access the Settings Center is, Insert + 6, on the number row, but another way to get to the Settings Center is by pressing, Insert + F2, to open the Jaws Manager, and navigate to Settings Center and press enter.
 
 
Stay safe & take care.  Mike.
Just once, I want a username and password prompt to say:  "Close Enough!"

Hi.  I am trying to get to the settings center in Jaws, but I am pressing the incorrect keystroke.  I was sure I remembered the keystroke, but I guess I have forgotten it.  Thanks.

Hi,

This is caused by Outlook’s attempt to guess what you are about to type. The text is part of a UIA notification event. Although I don’t have specific solutions for Outlook, but at least from JAWS side, try turning off “accessible event notification” (found in settings Center).

Cheers,

Joseph

Hi Curtis.

 

I think I’m running into the same problem. For me, it’s in the message body. If I’m not typing as fast as I can, I hear the suggestion, and hit TAB to accept it if it’s what I want. Most of the time, I’ve already started typing, and I miss the suggestion, so I’d also like it gone as well.

Hello Michael:

 

Where, in Outlook, are you being bugged by the suggestions? When writing in the body of the email or in one of the to or copy fields?

 

With best regards,

 

Curtis Chong

Hi.  I am using office 365 and use Outlook 365 as my e-mail client.  I am running the latest version of Jaws under the latest version of Windows 10 pro edition.  While I am typing this e-mail, the word suggestion keeps coming up which is distracting and annoying.  How do I turn this feature off?  Thanks.
